BIG SPRING - A petition to change school testing is gaining support in Big Spring.
On Thursday night, the Big Spring School Board threw their support behind High Stakes Standardized Testing of Texas.
It's a group that is looking to de-emphasize standardized testing like TAKS or STAAR.
The group says standardized testing only measures what a student gets right on the test instead of what a student really knows.
443 other school districts in Texas have also thrown their support behind the group.
